PG&E working to restore power to some Plumas customers

This week’s snow storms caused power outages affecting thousands of PG&E customers in Plumas County.  To help in the patrol and restoration, PG&E is utilizing snowcats and has 14 crews (3-5 people per crew) making repairs to damaged power lines and poles impacted by snow-laden fallen trees.  Contract tree crews are assisting PG&E by clearing downed and damaged trees.

On Tuesday PG&E restored power to more than 1,600 customers in Chester and to nearly 3,000 customers in Quincy, as well as to customers in Canyon Dam and Hamilton Branch.  Some customers remain without power in the Quincy, Keddie, Indian Valley, Meadow Valley and Bucks Lake areas.

Heavy snows can delay access and restoration, but crews continue to make good progress.  To report an outage or get outage updates, call 800-743-5002 or visitwww.pge.com/outages
